I hate all this robot stuff. They using us to work and making money off us and the money they make they invest in robots to replace us. I hate it. I hate driverless cars

hotel housekeeping is very detailed, you would need a very advanced robot with minute hand movements.

Completely agree with rob. Although robots are currently applied to the vacuum cleaner, these are extremely expensive, take forever to clean the entire home, and they are noisy. I admit there is a likelihood that the time will ultimately arrive, but it will be a while away
